Home Workouts

The most powerful weapon in your workout armory is your motivation. With proper motivation you can achieve anything, from losing ten pounds to running a marathon.

One mistake many people make is assuming that motivation means doing it alone – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Joining a team or working out with friends or family is a great way to help you stay motivated.

Another great motivation tool is enjoying your workouts – it figures that if you enjoy yourself you’ll want to keep exercising.

By adding variety to your workouts you’ll stay fresh and engaged, so challenge yourself to new workouts on a regular basis.

Aim to work through all 12 exercises - giving yourself enough rest between each exercise so that you can perform the next. Look at working for a total of 20 - 30 seconds for each exercise, with a minimum of 15 seconds rest, then repeat the next exercise for 30 seconds until all exercises have been completed.

Once you have completed all 12 exercises walk around your home for 1 - 2 minutes to enable the heart rate to come down gradually, taking in some water if you need it, then repeat the workout routine again for a further 20 - 30 seconds with 15 seconds rest between exercises.

As you become fitter, aim to increase the length of time on each exercise to 40 - 45 seconds, if you find 30 seconds is too hard, reduce the workout time to 20 seconds.

Remember the secret to fitness is consistency and variety - so keep up the good work, and when you can do 2 complete circuits at 45 seconds try the intermediate session.
